The London borough is recruiting for a director of digital, data, and technology. The position comes with a remit to “lead the delivery of significant change and improvement” in the council’s use of DDaT.

The postholder’s duties will be “increasingly outwardly focused” as their role develops.

“[But] your first priority will be to ensure that internal digital, data and technology provision is sector-leading, ensuring that the council’s broad range of activities are underpinned by access to an exceptional DDaT infrastructure and multi-channel services,” the council said.

The successful candidate will be expected to work with Enfield’s wider leadership team to set a vision for the role that data and tech will play in the council’s work. They will then be tasked with “translating the vision into a realistic one- to five-year service plan, technology roadmap, and transformation programme”.

The DDaT director will also undertake reviews of the council’s existing supplier line-up and its IT infrastructure. The end goal of which should be “establishing strategic partnerships and working relationships… [and] rationalising and maximising technology investments”.

The council also wishes to adopt “digital-first [and] cloud-first strategies”.

Applications for the role are open until 15 November.
